Prepare to hear 'Dancing Queen' like you've never heard it before ...

Paying tribute to first responders on the frontline of the fight against the coronavirus pandemic, Lewis Capaldi performed a stunning stripped-back rendition of the ABBA hit as part of iHeartRadio's First Responder Fridays fundraiser.

• Andrea Bocelli sings 'Time to Say Goodbye' during James Corden's star-studded Homefest concert

Performing while in self-isolation at his parent's home in Scotland, the 23-year-old musician revealed he decided on the slowed-down, acoustic version of the 1976 disco anthem because it makes him "happy."

Hosted by iHeartRadio's Ryan Seacrest, the new weekly event aims to raise awareness about the efforts of emergency workers as well as raise cash for charitable causes which support them.
